Dance Club Pick: Thesex & Summer Tramps
Straight up, if you're a dance-music head, you're probably going to Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend (see Music Picks). But what if you don't have the dough or disposition to deal with Day-Glo hordes or skull-rattling rhythms? How about some amusing — and cheap! — alternatives downtown? Check out the brand-new and much buzzed-about space Thesex, which is hosting Cureation, a funky and fuzzed-out '60s/'70s shindig with Mahssa (B-Music/Finders Keepers), Kave-In (Kevin Fitzgerald), Jackie Hoodoo (Blackeyed Soul Club), Turquoise Wisdom (Zachary Cowie) and DJ Dia. "Popsploitation" visuals by Tom Fitzgerald (Echo Party/Cut Chemist/Cinefamily). 815 Santa Fe Ave., dwntwn., 10:30 'til late, Sat., June 26. thesexla.com. The parking lot behind Tony's Bar has been getting sloshed in a whole new way thanks to Summer Tramp, a new monthly daytime dance club and "water park." This Sunday's installment, co-hosted by Bears In Space, features deckhands Chris Bowen, Daisy O'Dell, Josh Castro and Valida, plus a sure-sexy mixed crowd, free Jell-O shots, beer and bubbly specials. And, of course, a big above-ground pool so you can get splashed whilst getting trashed. 2017 E. 7th St., dwntwn., $5 before 2 p.m., $8 after, Sun., June 27.
